Seagate 8TB Enterprise Capacity 3.5″ HDD v5 (ST8000NM0055)

Test Rig

Testing we turn off any internet connection and reboot the machine to ensure Windows 10 pesky updates don’t skew numbers. Once rebooted we disable the internet open the task manager and wait about 10 minutes for any background tasks to finish. Once the CPU usage is at or below 1% we proceed with our tests. Each test is ran three times, we then average the three tests and report that score here. Should we run into any anomalous tests we toss the anomalous test and run the test again.

Cooler Master Pi Case 40

The Raspberry Pi is now 8 years old and one of the most popular one-card computers out there. The main reasons are low price and the ability to expand the Pi in all sorts of ways making it the perfect mini-computer for all sorts of projects. In my case I’ve been looking into building both a PiHole-computer (filter ads etc) and several OctoPi-servers to use with my 3D-printers.

  1. Your review results are completely bananas.
    I just bought three of these drives, and they do have a 225MB/s speed at the start of the disk, but they go down exponentially to about 115MB/s at the end (just like every other hard disk drive does).
    If you look carefully at the reported capacity in EVERY ONE of your tests, you will know why: you have been testing only the first 2.2TB of the disks.
    This review must be completely rewritten with correct results, or should be delete.
